Neat app for an awesome website. I saw two issues - Browsing the archive goldmine is difficult & no control on wallpaper display. Please add a calendar to browse archive.

Beautiful and easy This app is very easy to use. I've followed APOD for years, but the chance to have it at my fingertips and to easily use its amazing photos as my Droid's wallpaper with just a touch made both the site and my phone that much better. Question, though. Whenever I click to share one of these, it always uses the link for the previous day instead. Is it me/my phone, or the app?
